Atmospheric Science Projects

Atmospheric Science is a college-level, project-based course presents the principles of meteorology with a focus on weather forecasting and climatology. Topics include atmospheric structure, radiation and energy imbalances, air pressure, humidity and atmospheric moisture, atmospheric stability, precipitation and cloud formation, circulation systems, severe weather, ocean currents and ocean transport, and climate change. Relying on their previous scientific knowledge and using real-time weather data, students develop a deeper understanding of the processes that govern atmospheric motion.
